It’s an all-American Christmas at the White House this year.
For the second holiday season of her husband’s administration, Melania Trump has decked the halls of the nation’s most famous residence with plenty of sparkle and yuletide panache. In a video posted to her official Twitter feed, the first lady shared a peek into some of the opulently decorated rooms, which are inspired by the theme “American Treasures” and the “spirit of patriotism.”
Dressed in a chic black coat, knee-high heeled boots and a pair of red leather gloves, Trump is seen walking through her home, marveling at the multitude of towering fir trees, twinkling lights, ornaments, wreaths, garlands and other Christmas trimmings.

“This is a joyous time of year when we decorate the White House for the Christmas season,” Trump said in a statement. “Our theme honors the heart and spirit of the American people. Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the people’s house in Christmas cheer.”
